Gaun Plastic Tripod Drinkers - 20 litre, 30 litre, 40 litre. Large capacity poultry drinkers for flocks of 20+ hens. Suitable for all kinds of poultry, waterfowl and game birds.
Tripod Drinkers are great for larger flocks of poultry as the drinking saucer always stays filled from the tank above. Blue tripod stand and white translucent tank.
This easy to fill drinker has a raised drinking saucer, which means there is less chance of contamination from the birds, therefore the drinking water will stay fresh. The dome shape of the tank also means the birds can't perch on it and contaminate the water from above.
How it works: Slide the blue ring down the outlet tube to cover the outlet hole; fill the tank from the top, screw the top cap back on tightly enough for the tank to be airtight (but not so tight it damages the cap or tank).
Raise the blue ring to allow the water to come out of the hole; once the water level in the saucer covers the hole, the water will stop flowing and a vacuum is created in the tank. As the hens drink the water it will be replenished in the saucer.
If you find the water overflows then it is usually because the tank is not airtight. This can be solved by checking the screw cap and perhaps smearing some vaseline inside the cap seal (sometimes this is needed with new tanks until they 'bed in').

Probably just as good as any other drinker designed like this but when filled and levelled as instructed there is not much water in the trough below. The slot may need to be higher up so the level and width of drinking water is greater for more hens at once. As it stands less than half of the circumference of the trough has water in it and therefore fewer hens have to reach further into the middle of the trough to drink less. Would appreciate a response please

Did have to make a slight adjustment to get water to flow. But all good now
This our second Gaun Large Plastic Tripod Drinker. The first after many years didn't make it through the very cold winter but as it was so easy to set up and use we just replaced like with like.
Good solid holds a full back of feed
So far, excellent. A good supply of water which is clean. The drinker is very stable and hens see happy
